The Dirty (half) Dozen

OK, so it is no surprise to ANYONE that I have a lot of beauty products, I've only ever touched pan on about 3 eye shadows and 1 blush- the only reason I used so much blush was because expertly applying it to parts of the face/body did a good enough job of making me look sick, this in turn got me out of gym classes in school, it wasn't the classes I hated, so much as the requirement to wear bottle green cheap nylon shorts....yuck.  I digress....I have lots of stuff.  SO, to encourage me to 1. Use up some stuff and 2. Not buy any more stuff, I have collected together a few items I will use up PRIOR to buying ANY more...
I will:
  • Use up these products, posting pictures of empty packaging as I do so.
  • Not buy any new items until I have done so.  (gifts don't count and items order before today that have not yet arrived are also obviously excluded)
So without further ado, I present the 6 items (technically 7 but 2 items are the same)

Item 1.  Clinique City Block, this item is one which I SHOULD use every day, and I'm slack so I don't, BUT if I include it here I have to.  Win Win Item 2. Physicians Formula baked eye shadow.  Good stuff, nice neutral colours, was a gift with some other eBay purchases, really need to use it up, takes up a lot of space. - I plan to use all of these but realistically the lighter 2 will go 1st.
Item 3: Nutrimetics lippie in "Sugary" every year my Relay for Life team have a lip-stick drive, these babies come down to $10 and a percentage goes to our team in aid of the Cancer Council....its my part for charity, but I should really use this one up before the next drive.
Item 4: Australis eyeshadow in "Electra" these shadows and great, smooth, brilliant colour, a must have for a fool proof smokey eye, so its about time I used them up. Again, I plan to use all 3 colours but the silver will be gone first.
Item 5: Mirenesse Absolutely Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in "Sheer Pearl" this is a sample size, its good stuff so it needs used up so I can decide whether its worth purchasing 
Item 6(&7): Rimmel eye liners in "Jet Black".  This has been my liner of choice for as long as I can remember. They get smallish so I replace them, these need used up- to a point where sharpening them is too difficult.

I think I've included a fair selection of stuff, its not like I can ONLY use these products, its just that nothing gets bought until they're gone.  No promises though...I am only human.


Got something to add or share? New tip or trick? How about a joke?
